Radiologic technologists should demonstrate increased awareness of how the human body is arranged three-dimensionally. This course provides opportunities to recognize relationships between standardized anatomical structures prior to working with variations found in "live" patients.
Upon completion of this course, a student will be able to:
• Recognize anatomic structures in various planes.
• Relate planar anatomy to line drawings of related cross-sectional anatomy.
• Describe the spatial relationship of one structure to another.
• Differentiate between the appearances of anatomic structures among different modalities such as Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
• Identify the strengths and weaknesses of each imaging modality for identifying specific pathological processes.
